Law firm CLE speakers “on the circuit” don’t always get to pick the venue. We spend an awful lot of time on the road, in conference rooms of Class B buildings, or the windowless basements of three-star hotels. If you’re lucky, the less glamorous locations get offset by the occasional weekend at a five-star resorts or some really interesting locations.
Here’s the best CLE speaking locale I can imagine — Easter Island, a six-hour flight west of Santiago, Chile. (No, it’s not Stonehenge, as many of my lawyer friends guessed. That’s outside of London.) It was like walking through into Discovery Channel. 900 ancient hand-carved Moai, but only one talking head.
